:: sidetracks :: Because Autumn is coming

+ How to preserve a leaf. Bring a mixture of 2 parts water and 1 part glycerin (available in most pharmacies) to a boil in a saucepan. Pour into a heat-proof container. Drop in a few leaves and gently submerge with a wooden spoon. Keep in a cool, dark place until there is a slight change in the leaves' tints. Then remove them and blot dry with a paper towel. Instead of turning brown and crumbly, the leaves will retain their brilliant hues.
